I like Tiger and think he's a great golfer, if not the best ever, but Jordan's 1997 game against the Jazz in the Finals when he had the flu and a fever over 100 degrees and he still scored 38 points. I can't imagine any golfer doing that.

I'm not a big Golf fan myself. I'm still of the mind set that when I hit a ball I want someone else to chase it.
But when they went to sudden death I made sure I got to a TV to watch that.
It was riviting as you watched this underdog go against an iconic athlete, and bring him to a 19th hole.
It will now be to whenever a situation like that arises again I will watch another minute of Golf.

This is what came to mind for me as well when I read Rob's comment above. Not taking anything away from Tiger (how could you???? ), but MJ's performance in that game was nothing short of superhuman.

Just noticed that Tiger is going to have season-ending surgery. He was playing with 2 stress fractures in his tibia and a torn ACL.

Tiger to miss rest of season with torn ligament
Wednesday, June 18, 2008 12:03 PM EDT
The Associated Press
By DOUG FERGUSON

Tiger Woods will miss the rest of the season because of surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left knee, an injury he has been dealing with the last 10 months despite winning nine of 12 tournaments.

Woods also said he suffered a double stress fracture of his left tibia while preparing to return to the PGA Tour last month, which forced him to miss the Memorial and was the source of his pain at Torrey Pines when he won the U.S. Open.

He had arthroscopic surgery April 15 to clean out cartilage in his left knee, bypassing ACL surgery with hopes it could get him through the 2008 season. But going 91 holes for his 14th career major made it impossible to play any longer.

"Now, it is clear that the right thing to do is to listen to my doctors, follow through with this surgery and focus my attention on rehabilitating my knee," Woods said.

Woods was last seen in public late Monday afternoon walking with a pronounced limp across Torrey Pines toward the parking lot, the U.S. Open trophy in his arms. Upcoming surgery makes his 14th major title even more staggering despite the stress fractures, he managed to win a U.S. Open that required 91 holes over five days.

Woods played only seven times worldwide this year and won five of them. He will miss a major championship for the first time in his career and will not be available for the Ryder Cup in September.



Looks like he's been playing with a torn ACL and added two stress fractures before last week.


Yikes!

Ben Hogan couldn't have done that.

CNBC just announced ratings were up 50% over last year.

Couldn't help but think of the first flag-to-flag Daytona 500 while watching this weekend.
First prime-time golf worked nicely. Could be a watershed weekend for the whole sport.



My brother told me he read somewhere, that the ratings were so high during Primetime that the USGA is considering lighting up some of the courses so they could play at night........that would be different. We had a course here in town that had the front nine lit up and it was always fun to play. Much cooler too.

Nascar did it and made it entertaining. Hopefully golf can pull it off too.

Anybody ever play night golf, where you put glow sticks in your ball and hung a glow stick on the pin..........We did that once, it was pretty fun. Just allowed 1 flashlight per foursome. That was awesome seeing the streaking balls in flight. Shot a little higher than our normal score......

As bad as Hogan's legs were, he would barely notice a torn ACL. For him, that would equate to a nearly pain-free round.

The article said he tore it while running near his home after the Brittish Open last year.
No details.

Did it myself two years ago. After many years of sports (football, hockey, skiing, mountain biking and golf) and playing the drums for 30 plus years I actually tore the ACL while playing golf. The amount of stress that is put on the knee with the turn through swing is incredible. Had the knee scoped and cleaned out in universtiy and according to my Dr. it was going to eventually happen. Now its chronic and the cure is advil, knee braces and eventually a new knee in years to come.

There are many ways to tear an ACL.

My daughter Susan tore hers just hopping off a balance beam. (Not in competition)

Daughter Amy tore hers jogging during preparations for deploying to Iraq.


BTW, it hurts like hell.

When I played golf before my right hip was replaced, every shot made the bone on bone contact move, it hurt so bad I was bailing out before full impact anticipating the pain.
